A bakery in Bakersfield, Calif., is facing criticism for refusing to bake a cake for a gay couple who posted about the ordeal on Facebook Saturday.
Eileen Del Rio said the bakery owner, Cathy Miller, refused to make her and her partner’s wedding cake because she doesn’t condone same sex marriages, The New York Daily News reported Monday. Del Rio did note in her post, however, that the baker offered to make up their order and send it off to another bakery for the wedding day.
“The ceremony, when you’re getting married is in the eyes of the Lord,” Miller told KGET. “That’s a celebration of a union that God has brought together and that’s a whole lot different than coming in and wanting a cookie.”
“Here at Tastries, we love everyone. My husband and I are Christians and we know that God created everyone and He created everyone equal, so it’s not that we don’t like people of certain groups of people. There is just certain things that violate my conscience,” Miller said according to Fox40. (Read more from “Another Bakery Faces Backlash Because It Won’t Bake Cake for Gay Wedding” HERE)
